Theragun and Hypervolt are two of the most popular percussion therapy companies in the United States. As you can imagine, they’re also direct competitors. If you have or are looking to purchase a percussion massager, you may be wondering what makes their products unique. In this article, you’ll learn about the similarities and differences Theragun vs Hypervolt (including how they compare in cost).
How is Theragun vs Hypervolt similar?
These high-end percussion massagers have a few noticeable similarities.
Turn off at high pressure
If you use enough pressure, they both will stall out. Honestly, this shouldn’t be an issue unless you’re pressing down with a vengeance!
Both the Theragun vs Hypervolt weight approximately 3 pounds. This is light enough for most people to use them for an extended period of time.
Keep in mind that both products are premium percussion massagers. They’re built with quality in mind and, hence, come at a higher price tag than knock offs. If competitors come out with similar products that have comparable features and benefits, I do anticipate the price of these devices will go down.
How are Theragun vs Hypervolt different?
On the other hand, Theragun vs Hypervolt has a number of differences to consider.
Speed and amplitudes
The Theragun has a 16mm amplitude and two speeds at frequencies of 1750 and 2400 RPMs. On the other hand, Hypervolt has a 13 mm amplitude and three speeds at frequencies of 2000, 2600, and 3200 RPMs
Built with Quiet Glide Technology, Hypervolt is quieter than the Theragun (but it’s barely a noticeable difference).
The Theragun comes with 6 (dampener, large ball, standard ball, wedge, thumb, cone) while the Hypervolt Plus comes with 5 (bullet, cushion, fork, round, and flat). These attachment shapes and sizes are fairly different so take note.
The Theragun comes with 3 batteries that both have a 75-minute battery life when fully charged. The Hypervolt Plus comes with one batter (that is nicely built into its design) and has a 120-minute battery life when fully charged.
The Theragun has 4 different adjustable arm angles, the Hypervolt Plus does not. Many find this a nice feature to get to different areas of the body.
As you’ll see below, the Thergun is much more expensive than the Hypervolt and I can’t figure out why. You could argue the adjustable arm and amplitude provide more value, but that’s debatable. Keep in mind, both are premium options and are more expensive
